Food, food, food
I was at the hotel for a corporate event. The room was large and clean. I liked the fact that the sink/vanity area was outside the bathroom. There was no safe or refrigerator.
The hotel had a buffet restaurant and a standard restaurant with portions that were so large my husband and I were able to share our meal (after the first night) when we realized how large the portions were. After buffet lunch there was not much room for a large dinner. Meals were reasonably priced.
The hotel provided a shuttle to the Metra station which my husband used to go into Chicago while I was at meetings. They would also take you to the local mall. He called to let them know when he needed to be picked up and they were there within a few minutes.
Golf is very reasonable-40 something dollars with cart. There is a special in the evening that includes clubs that is less than $30.
The indoor pool and indoor whirlpool were nice, but in another building. I cannot see using these in the winter. I often like to use the whirlpool when I wake up early, and the fact that it was in another building limited the number of times I used them. (And we were in the first tower on the ground floor which was closest to the door to the walkway to the other building).
I did not use the spa. There was a group bowling party which was a lot of fun. Also ping pong and billiards as well as a small game room.
All in all I felt this was a good value for the money. My husband was able to play golf and enjoy the city. We did not have the hassle of driving and the high Chicago rental car fees.
Loved the Eaglewood! Great Deal, Great Time!
My family and I recently stayed for the weekend at the Eaglewood and had a great time. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff very friendly and courteous. We booked the Family "Are We There Yet" Package which was an absolute deal! The pool, bowling and fitness center were absolutely wonderful. We will definitely return and bring along some more friends and family!
MORE FUN FOR THE MONEY~ Check this out
I was very pleased that we chose to stay at this property. They have it all and it is close to all the attractins we wanted to see. The hotel is NEW, built in 2002. This Resort has all the Frank Lloyd Wright appeal one could ever hope for. The Golf course was closed for the winter, but I will come back. BEAUTIFUL! Super Friendly front desk staff. We were greated by a Doorman named Jeff who went out of his way to help us out of our Cab. He loaded our bags and showed us the Front Desk. At the Desk, Ritchie was warm and Friendly. She had us checked in and on our way to our room in no time. Jeff accompanied us to our room and even got us Ice. Again a very nice touch. We ate in the Prairie room and had a great meal. The service was friendly and efficient. I had the Fish special! YUMMY! My wife enjoyed the oversided burger with all the fixin's. Good value for the $$$$$. We enjoyed a nightcap at the Lobby Bar. There was a good selection of drinks and I was able to get my favorite Sambuca! On our second day we went bowling, Swimming and took advantage of the spa. My wife had a facial and I got a haircut. We then had a couples massage. We were here on a marriage retriet with our church and we will recommend this to all our friends.
THe staff is friendly and diverse. The resort is beautiful and welcoming for all. We felt at home away from home. Thank you Eaglewood It was more than we hoped for. Special mention to "Nacho" for the free pour!
More fun, Less Travel Time, Great Local
We usually go to Wisconsin for the Holidays but this year we Tried the Eaglewood resort in Chicagoland. IT was as much fun as making that long drive. Big Pool, 6 Lane Bowling Alley, Game Room, and FOOD FOOD FOOD. We really had a good time. We stayed on the Let's play Package which fit our family need perfectly. My wife used the spa while the kids and I rolled a 300 in Bowling!!!!! OK it took 3 games to get to 300 But it was a blast. Give this place a try, A wonderful place to stay for less than $100.00! Merry Christmas!
Best Value in Chicagoland
Total luxury, Loved the Spa and the reflex massage. Game room is very fun and they have 6 lanes of Bowling. I loved the Buffet on Sunday and the Steak Special I took advantage of on the Saturday. Golf is Beautiful and Fishing is excellent. Stop by and see Andy at the Pro Shop for a great tip on improving your game. Over all I will stay here again.
Very unorganized Facility
I just spent the weekend at the "Resort". I wouldn't say it was terrible but I would not return to this facility. The Spa was extremely unorganized and overpriced compared to city spas. The hotel was fine, nothing to write home about. The staff did not seem to know what they were doing. The resort is in the middle of Itasca, single family homes are right across the street. I would not consider it luxurious to any extreme. The pool is nice, but if it were winter you would have to exit the hotel and walk outside to the pool and it is not a short walk if it were to be cold. Overall, overpriced, overrated and unprofessional.
I got it off Hotwire for $55 so $68 w/ tax & fee. When I checked in they gave me a coupon for $59.00 per night good through the end of the year - just go to their website and type in INTRO in the promo code section.
Yes, this place does cater to corporate meetings etc., but I really liked it.
Rooms in the towers are very spacious with a large balcony. My 9th floor view of the golf course was very enjoyable - perfect for a cigar and a Bud! Furniture, beading etc. is all 3-star-plus quality. Obviously totally remodeled within the last year or so. Also very low occupancy when I stayed. Conclusion: For business travel in the western suburbs, this $59 a night value can't be beat!
Hole in One!
This resort is awesome. We really enjoyed the facilities. My wife is in town for Pampered Chef and we got to play! The kids and I loved the Boling alley and the game room. I played Golf and found the course to be in great shape and just challenging for a guy with my skills. The area is beautiful and there is no end to the things you can do. Just minutes from the Mall, O'Hare and Down Town Chicago. Quiet Resort on over 100 Acres! Totally worth it and very nice. Great Staff and overall a 5 star stay. The Bath items are high quality green tea spa soaps and gels. Im a guy but I liked it too! Give it a try and you'll discover my favorite Golf Resort in Illinois!
The rooms were OK, but could not accommodate our entire family of 6 (we had to go with 2 adjoining rooms). These are typical hotel rooms, no refrigerator, sink, VCR, or microwave. We had a child taking amoxicillin and needed to have the medication refrigerated. They did supply us with a tiny refrigerator, but it barely kept anything cold.
We ran out of t.p. one of the days, and outside our window was a very large pipe (HVAC and/or water heater). Every 15 minutes or so a loud humming noise filled our rooms for about 5-10 minutes. This was very annoying. The rooms were hot - all the time (even with the windows open and 40 degree weather outside). Stay away from the 3rd floor rooms 320 and 322! The restaurants are not very kid friendly - the prices are outrageous and the quality of food was average. To get to the spa, pool, bowling area etc. you have to walk outside across the parking lot. This is extremely inconvenient in cold weather and with children.
Now the good stuff...the pool was very nice and large. We had very few people that we had to share it with because the resort was so empty. We didn't use the spa, but it looked nice. The bowling area and fitness center were very nice. The staff was mostly pleasant. The value was great. We got 3 nights (2 rooms) for $400 total plus $100 in resort credits (for use in the restaurants, bowling area, and spa). The surrounding area is full of things to do. Would I go back? Only if they offered me a free weekend. It just wasn't all that great.
Only seems to cater to corporations
I was quoted $119/room over the phone and provided a list of amenities that included use of the bowling lanes (individual or private parties), spa, health club and an indoor pool. The following day I went to the resort to make the reservations for our party. People were courteous and friendly, providing me a better rate of $59/room. I was offered the use of a banquet room for no additional cost. All of this was wonderful until I was informed that the bowling alley can only be used by corporations and the pool would not be available. Although not having use of the bowling alley would have been disappointing, it was not having use of the pool that led me to move our group to another hotel.
It appeared to me that the resort only was interested in business from corporations and not the general public.

Monday morning I got up early, hauled my luggage uphill to the train station and got on the train to the Brussels Airport. Signage at the airport was great and it was easy to get to the right area to check in for my flight. There is a lot of security happening at this airport! I was asked questions about my bags before I could check in for my flight, had to go through security and then was asked about my bags and if I ...
On this trip, I will be visiting three countries, Poland, The Netherlands and Belgium. All are part of the European Union, however Poland uses it's own currency, the zloty, and will be the farthest east I have traveled in Europe. I picked each of these countries for one specific reason initially: Poland to visit Auschwitz, The Netherlands to visit the Anne Frank Museum and Belgium to visit the city of Bruges. I am also ...
... all in to a Cuban class ("Havana Nights" was the title) as a way of saying "thanks" for the help in moving. The class started at 6:30pm; in ordinary circumstances we would have been there with time to spare but tonight the weather conspired against us - the light rain that started shortly after we left Sexton Lofts became heavier and heavier; as we drew closer to 900 Michigan we had to take shelter for a number of minutes as the rain was quite torrential. ...
... it was unsafe for the ground crew to be out and there was a plane at our gate that couldn't leave. We had to wait for the lightening to let up, the gates to reopen and planes to start moving. I think we arrived at the gate a little over an hour late. I wasn't complaining because planes in front of us had been diverted to Milwaukee so at least we were able to land at the right airport! One advantage of Jet Blue is the ...
... can see where the 'Intelligentsia' moniker comes in as the staff (who don't actually wear white coats and safety goggles but would not look out of place if they did) approach their tasks like scientists in a laboratory, using kitchen scales and timers for accuracy. Here, for example, are just some of the eleven steps needed to make a cup of coffee with a plunger (which the Americans call a French Press) - this is taken from the Intelligentsia website: Step 3: Weigh ...
